A little more of this around this web site wouldn't hurt. It also wouldn't hurt if some of the intolerant would at least make an attempt to remove the beam from their own eye.

Wouldn't bother me if as long as those who call for tolerance think it means you must accept my way of life as your own, and your way of life is wrong, which unfortunately is a rather popular interpretation of the word. You don't have to love thy neighbor, just leave the bastard alone.

The problem I have with the term tolerance is that it implies that there is acceptance of something in spite of its faults. I don't think that implication is intended when it is used in the context of terms like racial or religious tolerance. Your race or religion are not a faults. Racial or religious IN-tolerance on the other hand are faults.

Nothing wrong with tolerance. I have always believed in never judging someone on their looks, disabilities, race, facial or bodily deformities, or even clothes!

When people speak of tolerating diversity, this is far different than speaking for tolerance of illegal activity or unethical behavior. Over-reactive types often confuse the two. Rude behavior and overly broad hatefulness is likewise unworthy of tolerance. I don't find it necessarily hypocritical to ask for tolerance for diversity, yet feel intolerant of specific behaviors. However, when a tolerant liberal universally hates conservatives, that shows a level of hypocrisy. Another often misunderstood point: Tolerance does not imply leniency toward criminal or unethical behavior. Nor does tolerance make us weaker. The concept of tolerance is mainly about putting aside superficial, ego-based differences and being okay with a little bit of variation in humankind.

Tolerance shouldn't be a hated word per se. What it means is that we should try to put up with each other's differences a little better. Strange thing is that the people who profess to be the most tolerant out of all us tend to be the most intolerant. They would rather classify us all by race, ethnicity, and class. Yes, it is the multiculturalist types that are usually the most hypocritical about it all. True, tolerance is having respect for all cultures, religions, ethnicities etc. We're all entitled to our opinions, but frankly there is too little tolerance in our world today. We think it's getting better, but it really isn't. This might sound ridiculously sappy, but we're in this together. Each individual is not an island unto himself, each of us relies on other people for key services that are needed to keep society moving. Being more tolerant might make us better critical thinkers as a whole. Understanding both sides of an argument is very important, but you need to openmided and be willing to even accept a little criticism. Probably the inability to accept criticism is at the root of intolerance. Racial, cultural, and intellectual superiority are all dead-end routes. A little more tolerance would go a long way.

OK, I'm going to revise this a bit now that I've cooled down. I don't want to sound like a stark raving lunatic while berating someone else for being a stark raving lunatic. However, the gist of my rant remains the same. Tolerance is a grey area that doesn't appy evenly. Of course we cannot have the same tolerance towards those with ill or criminal intent, yet to deny tolerance or acceptance of people because they are a different race, ethnicity, religion or sexual preference IS wrong. So, yeah, I guess I would be intolerant to someone who is intolerant in that respect. The world is a big place with many wonderful cultures, languages, religions, cuisines and habits. You can be a moral, caring person without speaking the same language or praying the same way as another moral, caring person. How much bloodshed and agony has humanity endured over the centuries just because we can't see past our differences? Sorry I get so steamed up about this people, but I have seen too much hurt and pain firsthand in my wanderings around the world to just let this go. Learn about other cultures, make friends with foreigners and then maybe you won't have to just tolerate, but actually love and accept.

Just wondering, does it make someone intolerant if they do not tolerate intolerance?

Yeehaah Twinmom! Kickin' ass and takin' names. Good for you and damn well said. The people who get upset about tolerance usually want tolerance for nobody but themselves.
